So, unless we go below Deluxe level (we've only ever stayed at AoA, and loved it, but looking for a little more fanciness for this trip) we have -

AKL savannah room - obviously the big PROs there are the restaurants and the animal view. Con, I guess, is slightly longer transportation to the parks.

WL courtyard view - a few hundred bucks cheaper, on the lagoon, and a little closer to MK. Con to me seems like not so many great restaurants. How hard is it to get from WL to Poly, so we could still eat at Ohana and Kona Cafe?

Thanks again, guys, for your help.

BTW aaarcher - I grew up in (and still visit) Columbus/Westerville!! O-H!!
I see you picked WL. I have never stayed at WL, but ate at Whispering Canyon as part of a tour. WL is a beautiful resort, hope you love it!

Thanks again, everyone - you are all so very helpful!!!

I'm not sure which I'm more excited for - the wedding or the disneymoon!!!
You are going to absolutely love the WL. It is my favorite resort and am going to be there for my upcoming trip the end of November-beginning of December. The boat ride to the MK is so relaxing and convenient, there is a quick boat ride to the CR and access to the monorail, and the theming of the resort is awesome. Your breath will be taken the first time you walk into the lobby. Congrats on the upcoming wedding and the Disneymoon at the WL.

Have you considered the SOG? It's right near the poly so you could easily eat there and the rooms are very large. You should get a good price too.
